The Severn Bore has caught the imagination of many people from around the world. In his talk, Chris Witts describes how nature creates the bore, those that choose to surf the bore, the declining salmon fishing in the estuary, elver and eel fishing. Finally he describes what it is like to steer a large cargo barge loaded with 250 tonnes of grain around the tight bends of the river whilst riding the bore!
All talks are illustrated with the latest digital equipment, including a short film or two, and last for about 1 hour. A basic fee of £45 is charged, plus travelling expenses of £10 within Gloucestershire.
